Hello There !
This is a blog I created to show a part of me finding one of my 'delights', which is doing some activity with a thread and a crochet needle :)
I learned crochet when I was a Form Three Student in a Sewing Class. I remember my teacher, Mrs Ku a strict person when checking my sewing work. I learned to make my own blouse, dress and crochet when I was that young and that was all I remembered :p
When I got married I continued with my crochet. They were just for my own use, fun and filling my own time. That was on and off due to having a full time job and raising a family. When I retired I started to crochet once more but later totally off it when I find my fingers turned numb after working with the crochet needle for 15 minutes. I think that happened 5 years ago.
I stopped totally after that.
Then last 2 weeks I have this sudden urge to start and try crochet again.
For 2 reasons -
One was because I read a dear friend's blogger Usrafatihah , she has started to do crochet ( Dunia Kreatif Mama), making small creative dolls to hang on her girl's school bag, a crochet hat for her little son or a cardigan for her family.
She has inspired me to start to do crochet again.
So Friends, do visit her and who knows you may get inspired too :)
My second reason was because I want to do one more thing besides just blogging while I am sitting in my room.
Blogging is one of my other 'delights' beside reading or watching television.
This year with the need to babysit my grandson while his mom learns tailoring I definitely have to stop selling my 'Cendol'.
So usually when my grandson is asleep in the afternoon, I go online to blog. Hence,in the quietness of those afternoons it set me thinking to add another 'delight' in my own time :)
And I thought why not crochet again.
Alhamdulillah....my fingers didn't go numb badly. Not as bad as it did before. I am beginning to think I should do more crochet to exercise my fingers.
In fact , finding I can crochet again got me excited. I even bought a book on crochet with Chinese writing, yet by looking at the patterns I can still follow, understand and crochet a pattern in it.
Nowadays most of the time I will be browsing in a shop that sells crochet threads and crochet books!
In time, I might find time to do some other 'delights' like cross stitch or others. Insyallah.
Whatever it is that I do, still cooking for my family will be what Mak isah loves best :)
